We acknowledge that for thousands of years the wendat, Anishinabek, the Haudenosaunee, the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations and the Métis peoples have walked gently on the unceded territories where we now live, work, worship, and play. We seek a new relationship with the first peoples here; one based in honour and respect, and we thank them for their hospitality.
